Cardboard Castles and Other Amenities...

I am really interested in using different forms of cultural action to help build better communities. Communities are a vital social model, allowing us to tackle problems beyond the ability of individuals with the focus of a defined (usually relatively small) group of people. How do the arts and cultural work in general help communities grow more sustainable futures? If you have a cool website or project or your own ideas on these subjects please let me know.

Benefit and Message: When Great Things Unite

Michael Rakowitz's paraSITE project is a really awesome blend of material benefit with social message. The basic idea is of a plastic inflatable shelter for homeless people which provides a warm place to spend the night when hooked up to an outside heating vent. Worldchanging has a good post of the project.
